Hash Pipe is a new limited-edition screen print from the Shanghai-based German artist and IdleBeats co-founder Gregor Koerting. Last month, he premiered the poster in a joint exhibition called Tale of Two Cities in Shanghai with the print studio Frenchfourch.
Hash Pipe is a screenprint that depicts the experience of underground nightlife in Shanghai. This vivid print takes place in a graffiti-sprawled women’s restroom in a seedy nightclub. Two young women can be seen smoking out of a hash pipe – one of the characters glances over her shoulder with a semi-surprised look.
Gregor has created this poster as a four-color silk-screen print, bringing to life a candid moment not commonly seen. His illustration embodies a carefree spirit, and is a representation of individuality and breaking taboos.
Hash Pipe can be purchased now exclusively on the Neocha Shop. Each print measures 38 x 57 cm , and was screen printed on high-quality Somerset 300gsm watercolor paper in four layers: yellow, red, blue and black. It is available in a limited edition of only 18.
